Are you positively, absolutely, sure ?
The two tome Cuny's opus is a must, BUT, the two ATAR projects depicted come from an article in Le Fanà of some year ago.... they refer to the German-staffed team ATAR acquired post-war when they started to work with turbojets.

Indeed. I have the two books thanks to the generosity of a forum member, and they are great, but don't have those pics in.

.. and it seems, the price hasn't risen during the last ten years. It was relative
expensive, when I bought it, now that's a bargain price !

Unfortunately, Monsieur Cuny passed away in a strange car accident almost ten years ago. He amassed a big amount of projects material post 1960, saving archives that were doomed to destruction (Cuny was famous in the aviation historians circle for his calling some industry managers "imbecils" for their mismanagement of companies' cultural heritage). In recent year some of this material has been used by other authors. For example, the first volume of the Mirage F1 history here often cited wouldn't be possible w/o that source.

I agree with that words. Cultural heritage preservation is capital.

"Cultural heritage preservation is capital"

I think the problem still is, that aviation, especially from more recent times and
even more MILITARY aviation, isn't regarded as culture by many people ! :(

Do you know the look on the face of some people, standing in front of your
bookshelf, reading the titles, finding a lot of military themes amongst them and
then silently saying "militarist" ? ;D

What a pity! He was a man of too much knowledge. :'(
